Ability Score Increase[edit]

Your Constitution score increases by 1.

Integrated Defence (Enhances 'Integrated Protection')[edit]

Your body has built-in defensive layers, which can determine your Armour Class. You can utilise these configurations if you meet the prerequisite(s), and if you are using a shield, you apply its bonus as normal.
You can alter your body to enter different defensive modes; each time you finish a long rest, choose one mode to adopt from the Integrated Protection table, provided you meet the mode’s prerequisite. If you had integrated a set of armour, it takes the usual one hour to remove it. In addition, the +1 to Armour Class does not apply to these configurations
